After becoming fed up with his bunkmates' living habits, Hawkeye moves out of The Swamp and into a quaint shack behind Rosie's. Meanwhile, Charles and B.J. continue to annoy one another: Charles with his loud, classical music playing at all hours, and B.J. constantly sharing news of Erin's potty training; Colonel Potter wants to paint a portrait of the entire camp as a present for Mildred, but it proves difficult with the men fighting with one another. Klinger, Margaret and Father Mulcahy take it upon themselves to try and get the Swampmen back together. Will they succeed in bringing at least one war to a peaceful finish?

Did You Know?


To show the horrors of war, Alan Alda had it written into his contract that each episode had to have at least one scene taking place in the operating room. This episode is one of only a few exceptions and has no OR scene. See more »

Capt. Benjamin Franklin "Hawkeye" Pierce: Do you have any idea how tough it is to live in the same shoebox with a couple of irrational jackasses?

Hawkeye on His Own
29 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Things are getting edgy in the swamp. When B. J. takes Hawkeye's last pair of socks out of his foot locker, resentment ensues. Just too much time together. One night Hawkeye seems to have had enough. Igor tells him about a hut behind Rosie's bar and he decides to rent it. But it is obvious from the start that things begin to get really boring. B. J. begins to drive Charles crazy with his toilet training storied. Charles does the same with his interminable playing of classical music, which keeps his roommate awake at night. No one is aware of the other's feelings. However, Father Mulcahy sets a plan in motion. Soon, Klinger and Margaret are in the middle of all this. However, things go awry.
